The advancement in technology has changed the way humans live. Be it smartphones or laptops, today’s connected ecosystems have revolutionised how we consume media and interact with the world.

Although there are several facets to technology’s exponential growth, battery technology advancements have made handheld technology feasible and compact. That said, most of the devices we use today are powered by lithium-ion batteries, which have high energy densities. Still, as time passes, the charging capacity of these batteries goes down.

Due to these characteristics of lithium-ion batteries, the battery life of electronic devices goes down over time. If you want to increase your devices’ battery life, changing it is the only option. Before you do that, it is a good idea to get a detailed report of your battery’s condition.

Windows lets its users get detailed insights into the battery condition on their systems. This information can help users make an informed decision of changing their battery and gain insights into how their battery is holding up.
